Cycling 1000 km for the cause!
For a second consecutive year, Abeilles Busy Bees’ CEO, Serge Caouette, is proud to take part in the 1000 km event of the Grand Défi Pierre Laoie. The GDPL is a society project that promotes healthy lifestyle among young people and supports hereditary orphan disease research.
It is by cycling 1000 km in 4 days that 200 teams are promoting the importance of physical activity. Each team has to raise a minimum of 11 000$. This initial sum is donated to the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie, and the additional amount raised is given to the Ste-Odile of Cartierville School to promote healthy life habits.
Throughout the last year, the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie foundation donated 5 000$ to elementary schools, 17 500$ in scholarships for university students 25 000$ in grant for research projects.
For Serge Caouette, the 1000 km is a special time where all are invited to stop and take time to appreciate their health and that of those around them.
